Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 7382)


In this paper we present Acce-Play: a system that aims to provide accessible content to all life cycle of films. It is designed to be platform independent and currently allows to play accessible content in cinemas. The content is synchronized with the playing film using audio fingerprinting techniques with the projector audio stream.
